Building Your Legacy

GIN
13 June 2012
  • Excerpt: I finally started playing Star Wars: The Old Republic in an effort to review the new Legacies system that has been added to the RPG. The problem that I was having is that to access the Legacy system, you have to get at least one character all the way through their first chapter quest. And there is so much content that it takes a long time. I didn't unlock my Legacy abilities until I hit level 28.

  • Excerpt: Modern online role-playing games have a tremendous obstacle that they must face, one that has been shared by girlfriends and psychiatrists the world over since 2004: How to beat World of Warcraft . Within a genre, there are only so many tinkers a developer can make to a formula before that beautiful balance is ruined, and the players become outraged by imbalance or a lack of features that they could find elsewhere.

  • Conclusion: It may carry a lot of the same foundations as other MMOs but BioWare has given the genre something it has desperately needed - actual RPG - and that can only spell good things for us all.

Star Wars: The Old Republic

  • Conclusion: So yes, I am quite happy with my experience with Star Wars: The Old Republic. In fact, I was more than a little irritated that I had to take time away from playing the game in order to write about the game. However, if my recommendation helps convince some fence sitters to purchase the game and experience it for themselves it is more than worth it.
  • Pros: Good graphics, great sound, fully voiced missions, strong focus on character story allows single-player RPG experience in an MMO environment, relatively solid launch, Star Wars and MMOG fans should be pleased;
  • Cons: Space missions could be better, crafting system needs more items for lower levels, galactic market interface needs some work, various bugs.

  • Excerpt: After a row of detours in the land of Legos, battlefronts, and action adventure games, Star Wars returns to the RPG in The Old Republic--a massively multiplayer online game coming not a moment too soon after its predecessor’s demise. Like many others who've come before it, The Old Republic stands trial as the latest would-be WoW killer on the block.

Review: "Star Wars: The Old Republic" is a Wretched Hive of Scum and Villainy

3 January 2012
  • Excerpt: For the short time massively-multiplayer roleplaying games have existed, there has been a surprising amount of evolution in the genre's design. New genres and concepts have been injected into the space with varying success, but few have tackled them the same way Bioware has with Star Wars: The Old Republic .

Star Wars the Old Republic

  • Excerpt: Star Wars: The Old Republic (called TOR for the rest of the review) is the new Star Wars MMO by Bioware, creators of the Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Knights of the Old Republic, and Baldur’s Gate series. As anyone who has played a Bioware game knows, they are the experts at creating memorable stories, rich characters, and a fun adventure. Even years after the original Knights of the Old Republic I can still go back and enjoy the game.

Review - Star Wars: The Old Republic

Game.ie
23 December 2011
  • Summary: The opening cinematic does the Star Wars universe more justice than some of the film prequels. The announcement of a Star Wars themed massively multiplayer online role-playing game ( MMORPG ) sent nerd chills down the spines of many around the world, but could BioWare do justice to both sides of a demanding coin? It is a title that is likely to attract newcomers to MMORPGs or the world of Star Wars, but it caters for these players along with more seasoned veterans.
